Destroyer of Illusions, an Underfable

          Destroyer of Illusions

          Once upon a time, a Zen Master vowed that if any soul be in Hell then he shall refuse Heaven. Such compassion certainly merited Heaven, but the Zen Master was too well-disciplined to accept it. God ruled that the Zen Master must go to a Hell; but that any such Hell must become a Heaven, which he must leave for another Hell.
          The Zen Master died on the same day as a Fundamentalist, who bragged that one of the delights of Heaven is to witness the torments of the damned. But to the Fundamentalist’s consternation, his notion of Heaven was soon visited by the Zen Master.

          Moral: Compassion transcends.
